It's been a while, but good things come to those who wait. Hailing from opposite ends of Australia, Perth's Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Sydney's sleepmakeswaves are proud to present you with a shiny new split LP. It's a record from two bands that are very different yet one that finds an equilibrium between the seemingly disparate tendencies of the two groups. Although both bands find common ground in their latent electronic influences, sleepmakeswaves marry these ideas to their...

(Hungover in) Siberia plays as one long-form composition that is constructed with deliberate melodrama to pay homage to a plethora of human emotions, partly inspired by the seemingly infinite Siberian landscapes. Autobiographical in nature, the music expresses the protagonistâs loneliness and longing to rejuvenate his soul and assuage his...

What does Magnets sound like? Imagine, if you will, Don Caballero and Tortoise having a baby. At age ten, after seeing his parents killed in a tragic trapeze accident, Steve Reich adopted the child as his ward, and secretly trained him to be his partner in crime-fighting. Upon reaching puberty, the young band fell hopelessly in love, and shared it's most precious gift. Though Fugazi was a tender and generous lover, society wasn't ready to accept their love, and the romance was doomed. In...

Transit are four Belgian post-rocking ornithologists, Jeroen (guitar), Toon (bass), Koen (drums) and Nick (guitar), with a passion for nature, emotions and all kinds of music. This is more or less the essence of Transit; more words about us would just be tiresome; so we just hope you enjoy our music as much as we enjoy playing it! This is the first EP release and should you wish to purchase a physical copy of the EP please contact the band at contact@transit-band.be for further instructions....

Inertia Blooms are currently in a place between two places. Full of new material, but concentrating on the last year of degrees. We have re recorded some things that have evolved since we first did them. One is a reworking of a track off the Hostages EP, the other was available on the Scrooge compilation that Robot Professor put out a couple of years back. You might recognise both of them as the collective last song we usually play at shows. We’ve also found another track down the back of the...

'Further Than You Think' is the second album from James Morris under his Final Light guise, following two years on from his Lost Children debut album, 'To Stop an Exploding Man...', displaying increased maturity and depth in both song writing and production. Beautiful piano lines interspersed amongst glitched beats, layered with delicate guitar lines, subtle samples and electronic, synth-like sounds to produce an often haunting, always harmonious and graceful soundscape. A great achievement and...

An instrumental rock band from London, England, Loss of a Child use pianos, string sections, guitars and drums to create a classically-influenced post-rock noise. With elements boarding on quiet ambience and others with distorted guitars and crashing drums, the ambitious nature with the classical instruments sets Loss of a Child apart from many leftfield acts, producing a hugely epic sound. 'Caught and Lost' is the natural progression from Loss of a Child's debut, continuing the ideal of...

This Is My Normal State is a post-rock/ambient band from Bristol, South West England. Formed in October 2008, the band has just finished recording its debut EP: Angel Falls ++ (October 2009). Taking influences from bands such as Sigur Rós, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Mono, Mogwai and Joy Wants Eternity to name a few, the band create a sound-scape of interlocking melodies, typified by the use of reverb drenched guitar loops, and fragile, ethereal vocals.

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving's music is progressive by nature. The inclusion of sparse influences, guided by concept and fused together, is the conception of their own sound, as each musicians respective inspirations force the collective into unchartered territory. After several years of existence and growth, mid 2007 saw Tangled Thoughts of Leaving construct themselves a purpose built, make shift creative space. A medium sized room, dedicated to forward thinking; the birth of new sound. In that...

My artist name is "American Green". It is one of my favorite colours. I started composing music with DAW a few years ago. I played as a drummer in a band before that. This is my first EP. Electric guitar, the keyboard, and other machine parts were used for this EP. I love music such as Post-Rock, Electronica, Ambient, Alternative, Bossa Nova, Emo, Melodic Core, and more. I hope to be making music after this EP that is warmer and more analog. And, I am also producing music by a band...

Originally created as a sound installation for an art exhibit, 'Parts' is a three-disc set designed to be played on three different cd players at the same time. Each cd player should be set to 'repeat' at the end of each disc. As all of the cds are a different length, they will repeat at different times, and an ever-changing sonic landscape should result. All tracks were recorded live using an electric guitar and various looping / delay pedals. http://www.myspace.com/barnetteric Download the...

wecollectskies' new 4 track EP has an ambitious approach to how the entire albums sound was architected. It has been in the works for four months as Josh Elliot's final project on university and aims to suit the modern days listening habits. And it shows, the mixture of metal 'cohones', shoegazing bliss⦠it exhales an energy that grabs you from the first notes and will continue to surprise by breaking barriers and blending genres within the realm of post-rock and post-metal.

Fugue presents an arduous journey through a quagmire of genre confusion and deceivingly orchestrated pieces of music. Love, time and a soft spot for over-complication gave birth to their first effort that is full of everything they think makes music great.

"I don't really have a bio for it, apart from that its a collection of tracks that were lost on my old comp" Great words from Josh Elliott, mastermind of wecollectskies' electronic progressive post-rock metal hybrid sound. Yeah, that many genres. Some more (and better) words from Josh : "wecollectskies has been a venture for just over a year. From one to three members but we see everyone as a element or member.

"I won't say that we are lazy, but the new album has been sitting on the shelf for way too long. So here it is, it isn't perfect, some of the mixes are not quite right, the mastering is sub par, but the music is still above par (in our minds). This album has truly been a lot of work on our part. Recorded in 5 cities, mixed in a few more, and our members being in countless number of places throughout the whole ordeal. So it is quite apropos that we decided to entitle the album Sleeping in...

Stray Borders are a Welsh quartet who make "slow-burning, mathematically precise alt-rock experiments that strongly recall the shrill distortion barrages of Sonic Youth". 'Deletive Expleted' is their debut self made and released EP and combines the mathematic elegance of Slint, with the American Alternative Rock of the late 80's and the subtle, melodic flair of the Smashing Pumpkins. Highly Recommended! Organ Art 's 'Demo of the Week' Just nice, nice breezy refreshing, clever,...

'Hard Fought, Found Thought' is the second full length release from The Shy Trafficker, recorded in Seattle at Attercop studio by Reed Griffin, and follows their 2006 EP 'Halves and Have Knots'. The Shy Trafficker is an interesting equation to crack; it possesses an elaborate infrastructure of instrumental indie rock ideals, a jazz-sensibility, and heroic interludes to build thematic “songs within a song.” The Shy Trafficker has been described to have a “Chicago” type sound which builds...
